approval rating in a while. this is the natural ebb and flow. it usually builds up after winning re-election. there are a lot of things in the agenda space. you pay off a limited budget right? you can purchase things with that political capital. the horror of newtown is such that it has forced this issue to the foreti particularly in the wake of aurora. if you were designing the agenda in the absence of that and obviously you can't do that is this something that you want to see prioritized or are there other things you would put ahead of it? >> no. this is something that needs to be prioritized. of course the whole issue of sequestration and raising the debt ceiling limit, getting the budget under control, are probably our highest priority at this point in time. we should be meeting four and five days a week in committee doing the job that we were elected to do and the republican leadership has not set a schedule that we can do that. the whole gun control issue has been on the front pages now for decades and the democrats, republicans, none of us have really done anything about it. so i thin
and the conservatives and that his goal is to win the 2014 elections and return control of the house to the democrats. most second term presidents have a significantly less partisan and less confrontational attitude towards that they try to >>> a lot of people never thought he was elected in the first place, and today, tracking poll, three day running average, 49% for obama. he was at 67% in the polls four years ago. 18-point decline from that. when operating is not designed to make it more popular and bring the country together. >> bill: now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently nra took out an ad saying president obama was a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards in other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging peoples' children into this. it's wrong z i think it's a means that makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues. that confr
amendment, which forbids congress to make any changes to pay until after the next election. is this still the right way to go for the gop? >> yes, i think it is. first of all, it's always a pleasure to be on fox with kristy. but i have been dying in anticipation today to see if or how she might condemn this latest gop compromise. this is the second republican compromise within the last month, as we know the first one was on the fiscal cliff package on taxes. and that is not going unnoticed by many gop critics like the "washington post" today, whose editorial basically said that this latest proposal by the republicans is very reasonable and that the president and the senate would be wise to support it. you know, listen, the republican party is coming out of this last election as a broken party. i mean, admittedly they are. getting them unified right now is a challenge. but i think what they did yesterday is an important step. yesterday, they had to raise the debt ceiling. i don't think there was anything getting in the way of that. they never wanted to do that, but it was an important firs
employees whether we are elected officials or appointed or civil service employees have to hold ourselves to a higher standard and obviously this fellow hasn't done that. >> alisyn: arguing hey it was just laying around here. i needed power and he is just resourceful. >> well, that may be his argument. the fact is that doesn't hold muster with the public. this it fellow is being paid with public money and you just can't help yourself to public products. >> let's talk about that salary he was collecting $165,000 a year because did he this has now been cut in half to $83,000 a year. does that punishment sit well with you? is that good enough. >> i'm note sure. that's something for the mta to answer. certainly, they are going to look at this its swa. they have all of the facts. and he has to answer to his supervisors. we don't know what he has done. he apparently used other employees to do this as well. he loaded the generator with his employees into a public vehicle during work hours brought the generator to his home during work hours. you know. if you are him you have just had your salary
purposes. >> i just want to say the whole business about people use today is mitt romney lost the election with the whole horse and bayonet. i wish would stay away from that because the president said were not using bayonets anymore. so it's a different weaponry, but the other thing missing here i think when i talk about overreach, the e-mail you read in general kristol's observation is people say, why do you need an assault weapon? nobody needs an assault weapon, but that's not the issue. by somebody in this country need to have a trial by jury? by somebody who's robbed a bank need to have the fourth amendment having a search warrant before you issue? nobody needs those things. the issue as they were enshrined in the constitution. so you have to make sure you work with what the supreme court has said. the right to bear arms is an individual right. the first of all affect the value can you can have reasonable restrictions, so the path forward for responsible legislators is to find out what the reasonable restrictions are that save lives. i think the taking of when human life is a horrible
or so. >> are you seeing confidence coming back after the election? and some of the bigger guys coming in maybe looking for some construction loans, commercial loans that you can make a ton of money on in the second half of 2013? >> well, we saw pretty good loan growth in the course of 2012, pipelines because we had strong closings in the fourth quarter are down a little bit as we transition into the year. i would say that we haven't -- have not seen a big pick-up in confidence in the marketplace. you're correct and we got through the fiscal cliff, but we've got a number of different things, whether it be the debt ceiling, the sequester, the continuing resolution in d.c. that are on the surface. our sense is customers are gaining confidence, they're willing to make marginal investments, but they're going to be very measured steps and they're going to be reflective of a loan environment that's commensurate with a 2% to 3% growth economy. given that we think we'll get our fair share, we'll put some very profitable relationships long-term high-quality relationships on the balance sheet, a
